It might seem like common sense, but do not aspirate liquid into a pipette without a pipette tip attached. This will not only ruin your results but inevitably damage the interior of the pipette. That means having the pipette calibrated and repaired, costing you extra time and money. Using a pipette past its volume limit will give you inaccurate results and possibly damage the pipette. It’s not worth pushing the micropipette past its limits to save time. Switch to an appropriate pipette that will allow you to work with the volumes you desire. Lab technicians that have jammed the pipette tip into the pipette have said they do it because it needs to be attached more securely. That is the indicator. If you continuously do this, do not continue to jam the pipette tip, it will break the shaft and cost you repair fees.
United micropipette tips are DNase, RNase, and Pyrogen free. The highly smooth surface is hydrophobic to provide low liquid retention, increased accuracy and repeatability. Inner radial rings enable an airtight grip on the tip cone. Autoclavable at 121°C and 15 psi for 30 minutes. Related Products: Micropipette Tips. A micropipette starter kit is beneficial as it saves the time of selecting the micropipette and the compatible tips which can be used with it. Microlit Micropipette Starter Kit combines 4 single channel pipettes to cover the complete pipetting range (0.5-10ul pipette, 10-100ul pipette, 100-1000ul pipette, 1-10ml pipette).

Load bulk pipette tips into racks faster Labconscious® Load bulk pipette tips into racks faster Nicole Kelesoglu March 17, 2021 Reusing pipet tip boxes by refilling with pipette tips purchased in bulk, followed by autoclaving has been going on in biology labs for a long time. The drawback is the time it takes! Cheers and credit to easylabsolutions on youtube for demonstrating this 3D printed device which makes the task four times faster! The design file is available on Thingyverse in the DIY Bio Group. Importantly, if you know CAD please share your designs adjusted for various pipette tip sizes or other 3D printing platforms.

A micropipette tip box is used to safeguard the micropipette tips. They come in various colors and sizes according to the tips they are used for. They are made of autoclavable and recyclable plastic.
White tips are used for P2, P10, and P20. Yellow-colored tips are used for P100 and P200. Blue colored micropipette tips are used for P1000. The tips are present usually in a sterilized form in a plastic box with a cover.
Micropipettes use a disposable pipette tip to aspirate liquid, note that the tip is the only part of the pipette that makes contact with the solution. A new tip is utilized for every sample in order to prevent cross contamination.
Pipette bulbs, or any sort of bulb based liquid transfer system, rely on the fact that rubber is easily stretched and compressed by hand and then starts to spring back to its original shape when you let go. A bulb shape is full of air so if you squeeze the air out and let go the bulb will try to suck air back in so it can spring back. If air can’t get back in you are left with a partial vacuum in the bulb.
